How did it go?

How was your Holiday?
Did you enjoy yourself?

I ate some of everything! The greenbean casserole, the broccoli casserole, the butternut squash, mashed potato, sweet potato, orange glazed carrots, turkey(dark meat), bread stuffing, black olives, snowflake roll, cranberry sauce - I passed on the pickle beets and meat stuffing though.

For desert, we were offered,
pumpkin roll with cream cheese filling
pumpkin pie
chocolate cream pie
apple pie
vanilla ice cream

I ate only a thin slice of the pumpkin roll and chocolate cream pie with a side of ice cream.

Most everyone else had one of everything!

We stayed longer than we usually do and that was really nice. My neices are great and I can't believe how much they've grown!
Of course, the gameboy competition was held...sheesh, that is so absorbing for this generation.

The youngers went out side and played tag and kick ball while the elders traded Pokemon and battled.

How times have changed, and yet, not. Guys still gather around the TV watching football and talk politics. Women clean up and talk about medical conditions. Have have to ask...WHO Has more fun?

You are so right, the men were watching football and the women were cleaning up and we talked about relationships. I'm glad you had a good day as well.

Since we stayed home we talked about everything and the kids played outside because I icked them out. *g* And then I went out and played soccer with them! So, we had a good day! Glad to hear yours went well, too!
